S3 won't print - stops after leveling


Recommended Posts

Posted · S3 won't print - stops after leveling

S3 printer will complete its leveling process and right after that light turns off and print is completed but nothing printed.  I have printed these items before, this has all started with firmware 6.1.1.

PS: already did a factory reset,  and i've also tried printing other pieces with same result

    Did you look at your print in PREVIEW Mode?  Sometimes when you slice a part with, for example, thin walls nothing actually gets printed.  When you say "i've printed these items before" did you reslice?  Or is this old gcode?

    I actually think i fixed this.  The glass plate was about an eighth of an inch off from back to front.  Leveling would complete with no errors and print would just end. I manually adjusted the build plate to be a bit more level and it is now printing.  The bug is, the machine should be throwing a leveling error but it is not.  It just pretends like it is ok and prints nothing at all and cura states print complete.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
